S or C is the average cost of producing output Q in which the total cost will be TC = OQ × AC = OQSC The profits of the monopolist as the difference between TR and TC are, Profits = TR - TC = OQRP - OQSC = CSRP Hence CSRP are the monopoly profits. These profits look similar to Super Normal profits under competition....
